Real Hypnotherapy answers the questions you’ve been searching for.
What is hypnosis?
There are three parts to the human mind, unconscious mind, conscious mind, and subconscious mind. It’s important to understand that it’s in the subconscious mind that all your feelings, emotions, learned habits (good & bad) and the way you respond in certain situations are. There may be certain things about yourself that you would like to change but you can’t understand why you’re just unable to change them. This is because no matter who talks to you about your problem even if it’s yourself you’re talking to the conscious mind. The conscious mind does not have the ability to change you permanently. So it’s my job to put the conscious mind to one side while we put forward our (mine & your) case for change to the subconscious mind, this is called hypnosis.
Can I be hypnotised?
Everybody has the ability to be guided into hypnosis, however, a persons ability or willingness to follow my instructions may differ greatly between different people but the ability to go into hypnosis is within us all. There is only one exception to this rule and that’s only a may not be able to, I’ve never worked with or come across this exception.On occasion I will come across an individual that will state “I can’t be hypnotized”, you would have to be pretty stupid to come to this conclusion without knowing the slightest detail about hypnosis.In general these type of people would be difficult to work with and are intent on proving they are right and the rest of the world is wrong. Bless them they are right in one aspect, they will have their problem for the rest of their life!
What does hypnosis feel like?
There are many different states of hypnosis and all are specific to what I’m dealing with. For most of the transformational work I do I usually stick to one state of hypnosis and it’s in this state where the subconscious mind becomes totally focused on positive changes. It seems to surprise most people when they find out that during any state of hypnosis you’re not unaware but quite the opposite that is totally focused.
What is a suggestion?
A suggestion is anything that a hypnotherapist says to a client’s subconscious mind once they have gone into hypnosis. The way a hypnotherapist uses language is of the greatest importance and a thorough understanding of the rules of the mind is needed by the hypnotherapist.
How many sessions will I need?
How many sessions will I need is the number one question I get asked. Hypnotherapy is a two-way therapy, meaning that it’s my job to put you into hypnosis and present a case for change to the subconscious mind. However, it’s also the client’s job to want the changes to happen. Most of my consultation is spent on educating clients on how to make their session 100% effective. To answer the question more accurately I would say that one problem requires one session as long the client has followed my instructions.
What if I have more than one issue?
I only ever treat one problem within a single session, however, if a client has for example anxiety and depression I would expect to see some improvement in their depression by treating the anxiety. It’s important to understand that within a single session of hypnotherapy you can’t mix and match different treatments. I don’t have a set amount of time between each different treatment it’s as and when the client is ready
Is hypnosis harmful?
No not at all, quite the opposite. I believe that hypnosis has been given to us all so we can tap into the subconscious mind and make tremendous positive changes in the quality of our lives. It takes great skill from a hypnotherapist to get a new positive change into a person’s subconscious mind; I would say it’s impossible to get anything other than a positive idea into any person’s subconscious mind.
What is an induction
An induction is the name given to the process of putting a person into hypnosis and there are hundreds of them. It’s the skill of the hypnotherapist that matches the induction to each client.
What can hypnotherapy treat?
The real answer is anything that you can’t change via your conscious mind. This means that via hypnotherapy we can adjust, change, and remove any habit, emotional response, feeling, experience, memory so they no longer affect you. You may be looking for a more specific answer but the list of issues that hypnotherapy can resolve is endless.
How much does hypnotherapy cost?
I like to think that ultimately any hypnotherapy
that a client receives from me does not cost them anything in the end. The way I see it is, if a smoker, for instance, uses hypnotherapy to stop smoking
by the end of the second week of being smoke-free they will be better off financially as well as physically for the rest of their life. The same would also apply if a client who wants to be free from alcohol
etc. It’s fairly obvious in these examples but the same also applies for gaining more confidence
or self-esteem, do you think you would stay in the same job if you had more confidence or would you move on to a more rewarding better-paid job? All sessions are priced differently depending on the nature of the problem.
